STRATEGIC DISCIPLESHIP GUIDE ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
This assignment will consist of 3 parts and is based upon the 3 articles in the Learn section of Module 7: Week 7. This work will help you clearly understand from Scripture what it is to be a disciple of Christ and what (and how) the local church is tasked in the Great Commission in making disciples.

1.

Provide 3 bolded words (you can use those in the article or create your own disciple characteristic term) and after each word define what is involved and the work required for the process of discipleship. Keep in mind that article in the first part above is describing the person, and this second article is describing the process. Begin each process description with, “The process of developing followers of Jesus involves…”
3. From the article “Growth Group,” explain how you could participate with two other Christians in your church ministry context to help one another connect to Christ, connect to one another, and connect to His Great Commission. Be specific, measurable, and practical in this explanation.
